Almost Wordless Wednesday… Gingerbread, the “Playa”.

I finally broke down and got us an Elf on the Shelf.  Tootles named him “Gingerbread”.  I thought both that posing him in different places every morning might be too much work, but a lot of fun.  It’s turned out that it’s just a lot of fun.

Gingerbread is loving Tootles’ toys.  And while, he started out innocently enough, driving Toots’ remote control toys, like this motorcycle:

Gingerbread got to finding some of Toots’ other toys and a story began…

Oh the shame.  Ken was ditched for Gingerbread!   Now Gingerbread didn’t think much about Ken. He’d found Tootles’ pool table and arranged a friendly game with Pete the Cat.  (Note Ken lurking in the background…)


What’s a game of pool if you don’t follow up with a friendly wager in a poker game?  Handy Manny lost his pesos in that game and where’s Ken?


Oh, at least he got on board when Gingerbread and Buzz wrestled Spike the Dinosaur to get back one of the pizzas he stole from Elmo, the pizza maker, as Barbie headed to work.


And just when it looked as though some male bonding was happening, Ken narks out the group by calling his firefighter friend Dave and his sister, Mia to put out the campfire where Gingerbread, Barbie, Hello Kitty, Blue, Monkey, Meetso (the Ugli doll) and Snoopy were roasting marshmallows…  Oh Ken.


It seems Santa is ready to uncork that Merlot he received as a gift in France last year, when Gingerbread recounts the campfire tale to him on his nightly trek back to the North Pole.


Sensing a little disappointment in ol’ Santa, the following night, after returning from the North Pole with Spidey on the Spidey-cycle, Gingerbread hits the ATM and hatches a plan to get back on track with Santa.


But thinking it through, Gingerbread felt the need to review his “employment agreement” with Santa and bring Ken back into the fold…

Gingerbread’s exploits are shared on Instagram @karenesq every day, just in case you want to check him out…


Happy Wednesday!

    Karla was right when she said your pics were awesome! I love Gingerbread’s exploits. I am going to have to go follow you on Instagram so I can get a daily dose…. and maybe some ideas for Alfie. 🙂

    Hahaha, that’s awesome! But I’m starting to think that you like playing with these toys WAY too much. And I don’t trust your influence over Gingerbread…you’ve been known to lure others into rather unsavory circumstances!
